The oldest remaining official residence and company housing in Japan. Situated within the historic silver mining town of Ikuno that has been designated as a national important cultural landscape. These "Koushataku" houses were built by the Mitsubishi Corporation around 1876 and are now designated cultural properties of Asago CIty. In such a historic building, you can experience accommodation while thinking about the life of the past.

The space
Normally, the former Ikuno Mine staff dormitory (Koushataku ) is a tour facility, including the administration building on the premises.

There are 5 buildings, of which building 7 is an actor from Ikuno who is indispensable for Akira Kurosawa's work. It is a memorial hall where Takashi Shimura (1905-1982)'s movie appearance records and relics are exhibited.

Accommodation is available in buildings 9 and 19, both of which are nostalgic buildings from the Meiji era. Guests can enjoy the life and culture of the mining town while remembering the past.

Building No. 9 mainly displays nostalgic daily necessities from the early Showa period to the '30s of the Showa period.

It also features a traditionally styled kettle bath that can't be seen in modern homes. Please experience it.
